The response for this event has been amazing.. Really excited to see so many people grab a ticket to what is going to be one of the biggest gigs of the year. This is Louis first time in Australia and he will be recording for his up coming film..

So get ready - we are going to give you something special and all we ask in return is for you to give it to the dance floor and show us what you got

Tickets are still available at: http://www.residentadvisor.net/event.aspx?378434

Grab yours now and start counting down the days!

Where were you when Lil' Louis played in Sydney?

Few of my friends run restaurants and other cools ventures

So I've locked in some free gelato sorbet from one of Sydney's finest establishments for a bit of an aperitif.. Speaking to another good friend who runs an amazing restaurant to get some amazing little tapas!

You guys will need the fuel!

Dear Boom Boom supporters

It is with great regret that I’m having to write this message to you girls and boys … Due to a massive f_ck up from Air Canada and mother nature, Lil’ Louis -- one of the founders of House music -- will not be able to do his Australian tour as planned.

Louis was flying from Chicago and his flight was delayed due to an electrical storm in Chicago. During a stopover the airline lost his records and belongings. Whilst waiting in Toronto overnight, we have been on the phones non-stop trying to locate his bags and exploring alternative solutions to get Louis here in time for his gig. Sadly, we have been unsuccessful.

We are obviously disappointed with this news, as we had been putting the finishing touches on what would have been a major highlight. Most of all, we are disappointed for you – our supporters. We hope you are understanding of our situation.

But all is not lost -- we also want to make it up to you by putting on one kick-as$ party this Saturday at a special discounted ticket price of $15.

We are running with a slightly different line up that will still feature a one-of-a-kind venue, premium sound system and an all-star line up of Sydney’s best DJs, including:

· Simon Caldwell (Mad Racket)
· The Paradise Lost Crew
· Kali (Picnic)
· Ken Cloud (Mad Racket)
· CO-OP
· House Your Soul
· Our House/Soul of Sydney


If this still doesn’t satisfy you, then we’ll offer a full refund.

Please contact me on info@boomboom.net.au if you are feelin’ it and want to be part of the action on Saturday night or if you have any more questions in regards to the refund.

It’s times like this I wish teleportation was a reality

Aight guys – see you on Saturday for a dance and a drink

Love

Karim

I'm sure anyone who has ever toured an international artist (which would be everyone on the revised line-up for a start) sympathises with a promoter in this predicament - you put time, thought, energy and, of course, money, into something you believe in and for reasons totally out of your hands, all that gets derailed at the last minute. A sorry situation for all concerned - I think Karim deserves a group hug on Saturday night.

Sadly, this isn't the last time this will happen to an Australian tour but hopefully the Sydney heads continue to polish their dancing footwear for the newly localised line-up for this weekend's Boom Boom. CO-OP and friends will do our very best to do justice to what might have been (and no doubt will be at some time in the future).

Unfortunate... but at the same time that is a solid local line up - nice work Karim, wish I could be there!

I'd imagine this to still be a memorable night if the venue + sound system live up to expectations!

Thanks guys - it's quite unfortunate, this tour and gig has been in the working for the last 2 years and Louis is absolutely crushed that he isn't here. But ce la vie the party will still go on. Boom Boom isn't just about the internationals but more about the vibe and quality of party we can presents.

The venue and location is such a unique gem here in Sydney it would be insane not to attend especially with the amount of work we have put into the preparation into this event.

I'm thankful for the support of my fellow peers and punters as they have all come together and will be digging deep into their collection of music to showcase some of the best disco and house from the 70's, 80's and 90's and a few new gems from the 00's..

Refunds
As with all tickets on RA - We don't get paid till 1 week after the party, though I'm going to man up and pay out of my own pocket to make sure you guys get what you deserve..

We will be asking all ticket holders who attend to come and we will give you your ticket price - $15 back.

Ie. $50 ticket = $35 back.

We will give this to you on entry and you can spend it on drinks Win win! We will not be able to give back the booking fee as this is RA.

If you still don't want to come then just email me at info [at] boomboom.net.au with your Paypal details and I'll shoot the cash back to you once RA hits me with the cash x

Fun Stuff
We will be giving the punters a whole array of awesome stuff as well as an amazing venue, shit crazy sound system and all star local line up..

- Greek Tapas
- Champagne
- Jaeger Bombs
- Gelato from Gelato Messina

I'll keep on digging through a few more connections I have to make sure you guys the punters have a fun experience and more

Thanks again guys for all the kind messages it means a lot that I have the support of the underground and the party people!

Let's do it..

Location and more will be located at http://www.boomboom.net.au

I reckon that because of the circumstances this will be one of those very special nights that people remember for a long time, and am almost even more devo to be outta town on Saturday. All those talented and passionate local crews pulling together is really nice to see and the vibe will be wicked. Good for you for putting this together as an alternative, Karim.

Huzzah!

Wow! What a night..

I just would like to say thank you to everyone who was involved:

- Simon (Mad Racket)
- James (CO-OP)
- Carly (Picnic)
- Arthur/George (House Your Soul)
- Phi Toke (Our House)
- Harry/Brut (Paradise Lost Crew)
- Clarisse
- Vivi
- V
- Dimitri from the Helenic Club

All the DJ's played spot on and came together to make something really special.. Boom Boom parties are all about making sure we have the right ingredients which are great DJs, great sound and a great atmosphere. Last night was a great indication where we are going with this party and it wouldn't be where it is without the support of many of the people who played last night and the people who came down to boogie..

Once again - thanks again to everyone who came down and had a good night..

I'm going for a little vacation in a few weeks so stay tuned for our next party. The Boom Boom Sound System is also available for hire if anyone is keen. Hit me up on info (at) karimpresents.com if you want more details..

Aight guys!

Lots of Love

It was a shame that Lil' Louis cancelled, but the party was still kickin'. Huge turnout and awesome music. Who was the DJ playing off Traktor? Stoked as fuck he played LFO and Passion

I really liked the two DJs playing before him (one of them was using old school stick headphones) and the guy afterwards as well. Had to leave about 2:30 so didn't get to see anyone elese, but for the three or so hours I was there I was having a ball

Good job Karim!! You did amazing!

Hell yeah.. I can honesty say that was an amazing experience. It was great to see all these parties combine together and show Sydney what we are all about. Every single person that played on the night showed and highlighted what I personally believe are the unique and special qualities that each of their nights represent.

There were a few little issues though we are going to get them rectified for the next party..

Till then thanks again - people came and they danced.. x

Sounds like a nightmare the whole debarcle, But why did you advertise Louis before he confirmed? Is this the norm these days?

According to the email transcripts on the site Kzzy put up, Lil Louis claimed to have no relation to Youri, before further correspondence with Youri took place?.. or am I reading it backward?

Was a really interesting read.

I can't believe how much of a drama queen Lil' Louis seems to be. Does he not spend money on anything in life? WTF
Got to say, no way in hell would I pay 100% of a tour fee prior to the artist arriving. Especially when it's $11500. I'd rather miss out on the artist, then to take that kind of risk.

I can't believe this guy actually feels he deserves to keep the tour fee.

Unbelievable.

Like to add, it's really cool to read the behind the scenes stuff of what goes into organising a tour.
Also some nice insight on just how well Artists tend to be looked after.

Such a debacle and the writing was on the wall early. Bringing the whole mess public..

This is not a reflection of what goes into organising a tour..

Best of luck getting the money back though, costs for international legal disputes a terribly costly, would imagine it would cost loads more to recover the funds.

I gotta say I think the whole thing has been handled pretty poorly (on both sides)
